Charles asked

> when you think of that TOC System Archetype, HOW do you actually
represent it ("think" about it) in your own mind? Is it a series of
pictures, a movie about a town and cows, a diagram, a bunch of words, the
feeling of having something precious gradually disappear mysteriously - or
in spite of your efforts to reverse it - followed by a flash of
understanding, stories from "Limits to Growth", or what...??

I guess I have learnt to see it as an archetype, but more to see an
archetype in the conversation and words of others. I acknowledge Lilly
Evans [out there on the list] as my own mentor in this and it probably
goes back to things Rick, or Peter, or someone said years ago.

If the interest is there how about an exchange on the conversational
patterns behind archetypes?
